CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from August 13 to August 19, 2016:

1. Turkish cartoonist arrested with newspaper colleagues as waves of arrests continue to roll through Turkey post-attempted regime change.

2. Wizard goes back and forth about having a gun dealer exhibit at their Chicago show, finally deciding not to have the exhibitor show.

3. Your 2016 Ignatz Award nominees.

Winners Of The Week
Those Ignatz nominees. It's a happy time of the year. Also, heartbreaking. But let's concentrate on the happy people.

Loser Of The Week
Wizard. The going back and forth cuts deeply into any positive impact to be gained by deciding not to have the gun dealer at the show. That was a shitty position for them to be in, but that's what happens when you use a third-party company to fill your halls and don't review the exhibitor list the moment you get it.

Quote Of The Week
"I think Love and Rockets is mentioned more often than it is actually read." -- Gilbert Hernandez
